The Greens will seek to declare a ‘climate emergency’ when Parliament resumes after the federal election. Their call is in line with that of former environment minister Peter Garrett, who says that if Labor wins the election it should convene a climate emergency summit. Garrett also says a new federal department should be set up to "decarbonise the economy". Opposition finance spokesman Jim Chalmers says Garrett is very passionate about taking genuine action on climate change, while Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has announced a $3.5 billion Climate Solutions Package.
